Energy-Efficiency Retrofit Opportunity
This is an opportunity for PAS 2030:2019 and MCS accredited trades to be involved in the delivery of energy-efficiency measures by local authorities across the Greater South East region.
The Greater South East Energy Hub has launched a Dynamic Purchasing System, which is available for all local authorities and social housing providers in the region to use to procure contractors for energy-efficiency measures. See Greater South East Energy Hub Trades DPS (due-north.com). The System will be running until March 2026 and enables any PAS 2030:2019 and MCS accredited installers that wish to join it to be onboarded monthly.
The Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a two-stage process. The first stage is setup: All suppliers who meet the selection criteria are admitted to the DPS. Suppliers can join each month when the opportunity opens. Individual contracts for works are awarded at the second stage, where local authorities can invite all suppliers on the DPS (or the relevant category within the DPS) to bid for a specific contract.
